Update: Well, dang it.
Against all my hopes, but as expected, and mostly because there was just no public interest in it, my case was “dismissed with prejudice.”
That means, in legal parlance, “Shut up, go away, and never come back.”
The new judge blathered on about lots of things. But in practical fact (and only slightly paraphrasing) he said, “nanner nanner; we’re The Powers That Be and you’re nobody.” Without any public interest in the underlying issue, the judgment is, unfortunately, fact. People get what they vote for, and fight for; not what they merely say they want. And one guy’s vote and fight isn’t enough to change anything.
The status quo may once again breathe a sigh of relief that yet another challenge to their crony corruption has been silenced.
But that doesn’t change the fact that the two-headed monster we only think is a two-party system is actually a crime ring.
You know it’s corrupt. But very few understand that it’s operating under illegal, unconstitutional, immoral, destructive and even stupid rules that hurt everybody.
The basic scoop is that our society is divided into two classes of people; the favored corporate entities, and everybody else. Individuals are nobody; corporations and only two political parties have special rights and powers that individuals are denied.
Only MPPs (major political parties, of which, by recent “laws” there can be only two) can have Precinct Committeemen, be on election-related committees, fill vacancies, and in general, run the country. Nobody else, no other party, has such power.
I’m arguing a constitutional case for equal rights among all human beings, regardless of affiliation, class, creed or crony network.
But, really, you should be arguing that too. Every day. In every way you can.
